A few signatures by the Ga'on Rabbi Chaim Palagi. Many comments appear in two kinds of handwritings; some in his tiny handwriting. On page 82, a signed comment by "Ha-Chabif". (The other comments in a larger handwriting are possibly by Rabbi Chabif, when he was younger, in one of them the book "Eretz Yehudah by Rabbi Yehuda Tanugi" is mentioned – Rabbi Yehudah Tanugi died in Safed in 1835 and if so, it was written before 1835). 2.
